Best time to come?
We have long, hot summers (20-35'C from May to end of Sept!)
Full winter is start of December to April
Spring & Autumn is the best time to ski the glacier & still do some summer activities... best of both worlds
I started DMG
8 years ago (when I
was 26) after having
skied all over the
world, earning money
from many different means (including some comically questionable ones!). I have been a backpacker in over 80 countries and built DMG thinking of my favourite places and most memorable times.
I first ran a ski chalet at the tender age of 18, and thought to myself "One day... I'll be the guy who owns the chalet and pays these young whippersnappers peanuts to do the dirty work!" Well, 8 years later I wrote a business plan & actually made it happen!
9 years on from that , and I've totally renovated the banged up, old house; increased its size in all directions, and got 3 wonderful apartments (I live in the smallest, up in the rafters).
It has been a labour of love. Blood has been shed countless times on countless 16 hour shifts while myself and many friends over the years have strived to learn all trades in order to make this possible. Thankfully I still have all my fingers, and still enjoy building and working on Doug's Mountain Getaway. I am still a long way from losing my passion & desire for improving it further, so those that come back year after year get to appreciate all these changes with me.
Who has helped?
If you've seen the My House video, you'll have seen all the helpers, friends and family who have made this place possible. In particular my mum for her support & for believing in my idea, and Jamie for being there when I've really needed him and for all his hours of effort and motivation he's given me!
Exclusive Chalet... or Hostel?!
So which is it?!
DMG was Austria's highest rated hostel since the year it opened. We never dropped below a 98% rating from many hundred reviews. It was actually the highest rated hostel in all German -speaking countries - but we could never win Europe's Best Hostel award because we had '10 beds or under'(?!)
Needless to say, alot of happy, fun times were had here. Romances & relationships were born - never to end. DMG tattoos were inked; and memories will never be forgotten.
2018 was a big year for me though, and due to a number of reasons, the hostel was closed. Sooo... A new phase begins! I took out a huge bank loan, renovated the old metalworks into something beautiful, and set to work on the old DMG too, by upgrading, revamping, replacing and generally sprucing up the place, ready for its new target audience - family groups / friends.
How 'private' is it?
There are two front doors next to one another. The grey is for the 'Ground Floor Luxury' and the white one leads upstairs to 'Funky First Floor'. You will get the key(s) to your apartment(s) from the lockbox on the wall next to the door. NB: If you rent both apartments then you must step (literally) 1 foot outside to get from one to the other.
If you rent one apartment, you get your own floor with all your private features entirely to yourselves. As with regular hotels, there are also shared facilities. At DMG, there are 3 shared rooms: The Garden; the Sauna Room and the Pool / Climbing Room. If a family has rented the other apartment, then you may share these with them and if you're super lucky, Doug may make an appearance (although he'll make sure to give you priority).
